. that's one thing. but in this context, in the wake of the sandy hook tragedy and people are upset about guns in the community, about gun owners, about people like nancy lanza, i think when you publish people's names and addresses in that way, in that context, you really make them in to targets and that's unfair. i'm reminded of tom perielo running for re-election someone published what they thought was home address on a blog locally and a person went to that address and cut the gas line there. it was actually his brother's house who had children. fortunately, they were out and thank god no one was injured but i think you have to be really careful and again that was publicly known information but opening people up to be targets like that and treetding them like criminals, they're not sex offenders. they're law- >> biding people that went to the trouble -- >> isn't there an issue with if you're moving in to a neighborhood, if you're moving in to a community, isn't that a valuable piece of information to know potentially if you have children or raising them -- >> steve, let me respond to t

flow of products from the gulf coast after sandy, a little bit from isaac too, so our prices here in the northeast are actually 10 or 15 cents above the lows for the year. and i suspect that may continue for a little while. on the west coast, we had a nice down trend, but today of all days, when a lot of people aren't even showing up, kind of like the giants yesterday, we're seeing prices actually move higher in california in a couple refinery issues. so that's going to be the hot market again in 2013. you've got an adversarial relationship between refiners and regulators and that doesn't add up to anything good. dagen: there's something very strange going on in terms of the wholesale market for gasoline and export of gasoline. can you explain that? >> yeah, one of the reasons the east coast has higher prices is -- and there's plenty of gulf coast product is the pipeline and it actually costs 15, 20, 25 cents a gallon to ship it from the gulf coast up to new york. you can actually ship it overseas to west africa or europe for probably a fraction of that. so even though the northea
sandy, that was a natural disaster, to think that all this really is man made, still boggles the mind. >> sickening. especially with claims back to 350, decent number this morning. >> there is a little bit of interpretation to that. to think that the government, federal government certainly was closed on monday and tuesday, some of the state government was closed for both days, one of those days as well, saying maybe it came in a little bit light. some interpretation but funny to see all the headlines crossing this morning saying the futures were moving based on claims or the treasuries based on claims numbers and not what was going on on the fiscal cliff. >> a crummy start to the year we get a fourth strike on top of all that, true. >> not such a crummy year for japan. japanese stocks rallying you can the yen continuing its slide against the dollar in all the major currencies, in fact. asian markets mixed overnight trading. the nikkei climbing to a closing level not seen since just before the march 2011 earthquake, marking a third day of gains, mostly drive bine hopes for a new stimu
happened at sandy hook elementary does not happen again. ultimately, the way this is going to happen is because the american people say, that's right. we are willing to make different choices for the country and we support those in congress who are willing to take those actions. and will there be resistance? absolutely, there will be resistance. and the question then becomes whether we are actually shook up enough by what happened here, that it does not just become another routine episodes where it gets a lot of attention for a couple of weeks and then it drifts away. it certainly won't feel like that to me. this is something that -- you know, that was the worst day of my presidency and it's not something that i want to see repeated. >> let me ask you about a couple of foreign policy notes. after the attack in benghazi, is there a need for more accountability this doesn't happen again and do you know who was behind the attack at this point? >> two points. number one, i think tom pickrick and mike mullen who headed up the review board did a very thorough job in identifying what were s
